    Weird and Wacky Stuff…

    So here we are, two weeks before pitchers and catchers. Johan Santana is going to the Mets, and it looks like Coco Crisp and Jacoby Ellsbury will try and peacefully coexist in center field… As a rule, MLB conducts background checks on all umpires, but the investigations were intensified last year when NBA ref Tim […]

    No Johan for you!

    Some day I will stop writing “2007” for the year… So Johan Santana will be a NY Met for the 2008 campaign and beyond–and I could not be happier. They are in desperate need of help, the Sox did not have to give up anyone valuable (nor take a multiMULTI million $ contract) and the […]

    So the Skanks spent nearly a quarter of a BILLION dollars for a team that could not even get out of the 1st round of playoffs? The numbers came out yesterday–Not only did the Skanks waste a TON of money, they blew the doors off the record for most spent by a team in a […]

    Could it possibly happen? Really?

    We all know Trot signed a 1 year contract with Cleveland last year, when the Sox decided to go and get a more expensive (and less productive) right fielder in JD Drew. And, at this point, Cleveland has not offered an extension to Trot, nor has anyone else. And, the Sox are still looking for […]
